Title: Sandro Ramirez Signs - Confirmed by club
Post by: Robioto on July 03, 2017, 10:01:40 PM
 :) :) :)




Sandro Ramirez declared he has joined the ideal club and ideal manager after signing for Everton from Malaga on a four-year deal, as he targeted trophies and Champions League football with the ambitious Blues.
 
The 21-year-old forward has penned a contract at Goodison Park until the end of June 2021 after Everton triggered a release clause in the Spaniards contract with the La Liga club.
 
Sandros signing follows those of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in a Club-record deal for a fee of 25million potentially rising to 30million Dutch international midfield player Davy Klaassen from Ajax for 27million and Henry Onyekuru, the Belgian Pro Leagues joint-top goalscorer last season who will spend the 2017/18 season on loan at Anderlecht.
 
Former Barcelona striker Sandro, who was part of the Spain side that reached the final of the UEFA Euro Under-21 championships last month in Poland, revealed he cannot wait to wear the blue shirt for a massive club, as he pointed to the influence of boss Ronald Koeman in making the switch to Merseyside.
 
Im very happy, this is a big step in my career, Sandro told evertontv. I know Im signing for a massive club in England. Everton is the ideal place for me, Ive got the ideal manager who is going to keep giving me the confidence to improve my game.
 
I cannot wait to wear the blue shirt in front of the Everton fans at Goodison Park. Its a big jump in my career coming to the Premier League and for a club like Everton which is really on the up. They have got big plans and want to succeed and keep developing. Im hoping I can get to know my teammates as soon as possible, and want to adapt to the football and the way of life in the city.
 
Everton have made some big signings and were hoping we can put in a great season and hopefully then we can achieve that aim of getting in the Champions League. It will be a big season for us.
 
I was lucky enough to play with some of the best players in the world and managed to win the odd trophy but the important thing now is that Im very happy to be signing for Everton. Weve got a fantastic squad and Im excited about being able to compete at Everton and win plenty of silverware.
 
Having come through Barcelonas academy from the age of 14, going on to make 32 first-team appearances for the Catalan giants, Sandro joined Malaga last summer and enjoyed a fine campaign, scoring 16 goals in 31 appearances as Albicelestes finished 11th in La Liga.
 
That caught the attention of Koeman and Director of Football Steve Walsh who, along with Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright, the forward said were key in him signing for the Blues.
 
The biggest attraction is the confidence already shown in me by people at the Club, he added. Im really excited at having the chance to work with the manager, Ronald Koeman. He has shown a lot of faith in me and was very influential in my decision to come here, as were other people at the Club especially the Chairman, Bill Kenwright, and Steve Walsh.
 
Koeman, who believes Sandro will add significantly to the productivity of the team, declared: There was a lot of interest in Sandro because, of course, hes a goalscorer, hes young and he has a big future in the game.
 
We have been trying to bring in good players so we can have greater productivity in the team and he will bring that. He will bring a lot of good qualities and hes a really good goalscorer, too.
 
Born on the island of Gran Canaria, Sandro made his Barcelona debut against Villarreal in August 2014 at the age of 19, scoring the winner just 12 minutes after coming on as a substitute. He went on to play 12 times for Barcelona in 2014/15 and in 20 matches during the following campaign, collecting La Liga winners medals in both seasons.
 
Im bringing a lot of youthful enthusiasm and a real desire to improve and work hard, Sandro said. One of the things Ive always had is a good work ethic and a real desire and strength of character to do well.
 
My key strength is goalscoring. Its always good to bring goals to a team and thats what Im hoping to do. My game is making runs off the ball, trying to find space, putting in a lot of effort and running hard. I think thats an advantage in the Premier League.

As the squad stands, yes, as a wide forward in a 4-3-3 probably.

I think a lot will depend on the Lukaku transfer situation and the kind of formation that Koeman wants to implement. Sandro not only can operate as a centre forward but also as a winger.

Even if he doesn't make the starting XI against Stoke, I expect he will be one of the first players to be brought on as a sub.

This lad has a first class football pedigree and has scored a good number in a top league. No need to test him like a baby. I think he'll lead the line but will get rests. No need to push him out wide but Koeman knows best.

Just done some classic YouTube research and he does look boss like.

A lot of his goals last year were from quite mad positions though...4 or 5 from really tight angles to the left and right of goal, another 4 or so from 25/30 yards. Wonder what he's like 1 on 1, I'd think he'd be a good finisher but it's always nice to see a range of goals rather than just like wonder strikes.

Watched a bit of his Barca days to see what he's like with the ball and I think he can ball a bit, dribbles well and didn't look like he couldn't keep up in the admittedly limited clips.

Given last season was the only season he scored a lot of goals, Im slightly concerned about how well he'll keep it up.

It could be that he's excellent at shooting from outside the box, but the worry is that those mad ones from outside the box and wide don't go in for us this season...

Yup, that's what xG radars are all about. @kramer0 (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=4360) have you seen any radars for our new man?

I do think the tools he has - pace, directness, movement, dribbling and goals look like they'll translate well, but yeah the amount of low xg shots that he converted was a bit disconcerting.

It appears that if you pretend to know something about something you get to be an "expert pundit" on these media outlets nowadays...

most of them are rubbish...and merely state what the channels/stations wanna hear....look at Darren Gough on Talkshite....an ex cricketer whose expert football opinion is constantly pushed on TS....I "sort of know" in a roundabout way Darren Gough....his claim to football expertise is he played for Barnsley boys....if you know that level of football..particularly when he played...well enough said....expert?   far from it....

From watching the videos, i feel Sandro would be a great live wire foil for Lukaku,

not sure who would be on the right tho. Klassan or Miralles, or somebody new? (please no Rooney) Demarai gray would be excellent here, but i doubt he would leave Leicester as he's only been there around 18months, I guess that means Berardi instead :D (the non Everton player i enjoyed watching the most in the fifa youth tourneys this summer)

Plus he certainly didn't have the likes of a Lukaku or Giroud to play alongside of there, either.  Everything I've heard/read said he showed himself to be much more of a "complete package" at Malaga than was expected going in (i.e., just a goalscorer).

Do like how the will he/won't he Sandro transfer thread reached 116 pages, yet the thread where it's confirmed he's signing probably will struggle to get to double digits.

All that angst, and it's now just "so who's next?".

That's what caught my eye in his video. A few goals from ridiculous angles, a few 30 yard screamers and not so many "normal" goals.

Makes sense.

As I say though I back his strengths, hopefully we will create more of the sort of chances he can do with rather than balls into the box.

Backs up the idea that we need a 'proper 9' in there aswell though...giroud cough cough.

His touch is so good, that he often only needs one of them to set himself for a shot or takes it first time. First touch is the hardest to control and it's not like he's poking at everything like Jelavic used to, he's just so comfortable on the ball, that he can get off shots or find a yard of space with minimal touches and a light boot.

If you look at the weighting on some of his passes, it's not on a Silva or Ozil level, but it's not that far off. It's more with layoffs or passes round the corner than through balls, but when you have that precision in opposition area, it creates chances.

Suggests he can be genuinely dangerous from a wide position and we may still be after a main cenre forward...

Yeah Sandro will no doubt be used out wide by us.

Id like us to sign a forward with pace next as we will be very slow up top IF Giroud and Rooney sign.

I know everyone is waiting for Giroud or a big CF signing but I am really excited to see this guy play for us and even if we didn't get another striker in - I would expect him and Rooney as an interchangeable front two would be a nightmare to defend against and make real nuisances of themselves.
Title: Re: Sandro Ramirez Signs - Confirmed by club
Post by: mikey_blue on July 21, 2017, 02:46:07 PM
I'd like to see him playing in a 2 up front, with a Giroud type player to link him in, or as a 9 on his own. Although I think the general consensus is that he will play on the left, I'm not a fan of playing anyone out of their natural position.

I get very excited about that video, do like the comparison with Suarez. Looks an aggressive, all action type who likes to get a shot away, and looks to get power on his shots.

My concern is that I read an article someone shared on here about expected goals, etc. Apparently, Sandro had a bit of a freak season and scored a high portion of unexpected goals (twice the amount of Messi, Ronaldo) and should have probably scored around 6 or 7 goals.

I'm expecting a bit of a drop off this season but think he'll be quality even with the smaller goal return, just judging by his style and impact on a game. A bit like Suarez when he first came over, wasn't the big goalscorer he is now (or before at Ajax) but then all of a sudden that all came together too.

Exciting

I'd take that bet mate. Let's not expect too much. I think he'd have done well get double figures next season, I'd take that if he is to be a wide player. Lukaku will get 20+ again next year.

Where I do think Sandro will outdo Lukaku is his overall impact on the team. He'll hustle and press, stretch teams and link up a shit load more than Rom ever did. This will hopefully provide goals for other players

'Expected goals'

What an absolutely fucking useless stat that is.

In a singular usage like that it's maybe not that great as he'll be playing in a different team.

But you could use it for assessing your attack over a whole season or your defence.

Eg if you average 50 goals a season then one season score 70 but 15, say, are from ridiculous angles and distances then it's unlikely that your increase will be repeated again the next season.

His finishing looks sweet and that cross for Rooney on Saturday was delicious not seen us cross like that for a while.

I predict he is a definitely a footballer.

At both ends...

But yes, that is a good example. We scored quite a lot of long rangers that haven't been seen since. 

Also we had quite a few games where Howard made good (not spectacular so not memorable) stops from good (for the opposition) positions.

Sandro Ramirez had unbelievable huge overperforming in last season. He scored 14 with just 7
expected goals,  also 0.27 xG per 90 minutes is a very small numbers for CF. Weak player.
I'd much rather have an 'over performing' goalscorer in our team, than an 'under performing' one. Kone, Beattie, Jo, etc. etc.

Several different methods that all get to the same general outcome. I like this explanation: http://11tegen11.net/2014/08/07/expected-goals-2-0-some-light-in-the-black-box/

Basically, the xG model looks at match situation (open play, set piece, PK, etc), league level, scoreline, shot location/angle to goal, header vs typical shot, distance, and type of buildup (cross, through ball, counter attack, etc), and weights each of these based on how much they contribute to a goal, and how often.
<Nerd alert> For the good xG models, this is fed into a multivariate analysis based on a large set of previous goal attempts that generates a sort of equation that you can feed all the relevant info into for a particular attempt/game/season/whatever to determine the expectation vs actual outcome </Nerd alert>

Essentially, it weighs all the things that we might expect to contribute to a goal, based on how much they tend to impact actual goals being scored. For Sandro, we've seen from shot charts that last season he scored a lot of goals from tight angles--these shots by nature will have low expectations for conversion. Now, it could be luck or it could be genuine skill, so how he performs this season will go far to answering that question.

It's worth pointing out that the elite players regularly overperform. They get tons of chances and they finish them. Not saying he's going to be elite but he's clearly got a bit of the spectacular in the old locker.

Also as I say his team generally didn't create nice chances for him, so his xg was naturally a bit low.

The chances he did get seem to have been 25-30 yard bangers rather than edge of the 6 yard box side footers.

I was concerned when I saw his highlight reel, because generally you don't score 8 25 yard bangers a year every year, but I'm still backing him. Think he's going to be a real baller.

Corollary of that though is that perhaps he wasn't making the right runs though? Or perhaps he wasn't good at creating high xG chances for himself?

Not sure, going off an article I read apparently the team were more whipping it in to a veteran target man and that isn't sandro's game.

Re: creating chances himself it's a good point. One thing we will never be able to replace is that once every few games Lukaku would turn into a 16 stone peak Torres and burn off a CB giving himself a one on one. Very few strikers in the world can do that, just turn on the half way line and get the other side of a defender. He was phenomenal at making chances for himself which was handy because we weren't great at making good chances.

I know next to f all about how Sandro plays but from what I've read and seen, I am backing him. Strikes a ball very well, physically very good, technique looks very good, that assist for Rooney was class as well. Can't wait to watch him.

Here's a good read about the subject.

I just think he's been very clinical, the goals are precision strikes, with 5 goals from free kicks, very few deflections. It's not like he's not taken easy chances, he just didn't get a huge amount of them. Despite being at Malaga, you would still want him to have had more shots from prime locations. But he scores goals from further out, from tougher circumstances, a player who makes a breakthrough. We can have someone else who pokes around the 6 yard box to bring on.

I'd be interested given his shot map, shots per game, and presumably eagerness to shoot, how similar his profile is to Harry Kane. At a closer range Kane scores more and remains clinical, but he still scores from a way out, with early shots from limited touches.

No problem! I've been a baseball fan my whole life (being American), and as such have seen the impact advanced statistical analysis has had on the sport. There's a lot that can be learned from the spreadsheets, but as you said it's the Beautiful Game, and there's a limit to what stats can tell you.

Baseball is very much a sequence of discrete events, so it's in some ways much easier to analyze. Football is so fluid that it's that much tougher to get a concrete picture of the state of things at any particular instant.

Blob on, but seeing the glass as half full, we arent that far away really.

Sandro is a very decent player, his main attributes are movement and being a pain in the arse all over the front line.
Rooney is a decent player still and his main (of many) attributes is footballing (at least) intelligence and coming deep for the ball and dictating an attack.

Put them together and there isnt a proper striker in the box very often.

Add a target man striker to them two and we have a deadly attack (Dzeko or a Giroud)

It's not all about pace, as quality, intelligence and movement add just as much if not more. But inject a little pace back in the side - the good old Baines and Coleman (hurry back!) combo - getting forward, with defensive mids dropping back. We have Gana, Schneids and others that can drop back, but width/pace needs to be addressed. Bolasie will be back soon too.

We need a little more creativity and a bit more knowhow from midfield, as we are often short of ideas and slow building up with far, far too many passes back to the defenders/keeper. To address this and improve our set piece threat and not to mention increase our goal tally we need someone that can come in now and do a job straight away (Sigurdsson).

Strengthen our ageing heart of defence and build-up play from the back, as Williams and Jags are getting on a bit now and will make more mistakes (Smalling)

Stek did ok last night, but play Pickford from now and stick with him.

End the Barkley and Sigurdsson dramas, and put a bit more investment into these areas, and I reckon we will surprise a few with our league position after our horrendous opening 6 fixtures! But do it soon, so we are a bit more gelled and fit and ready for it come the start, in 15 days!!!!

Agreed. That's the key word "fluid". That is when we are at our best, with players like Rooney, Sandro, Klassen buzzing around - fluid play. We are at our worst when we are dicking around, passing backwards and fucking around at the back, when you JUST KNOW that someone is going to make a blooper and other teams, like they do, always seem to punish us for it. Fluidity comes from talent and work-rate, the more established, talented hard working players we have the better imo. We dont need to look for one attribute, like pace, or size, but we need to look for players that have consistently shown ability and importantly the right attitude to working as a component in a team to work together and win a football game. Luckily its looking like we have a few players in this mould to play a decent style of football, but there are one or two that we need to replace - weak links in the chain so to speak. Koeman and the board know this, we just have to get behind them, and just hope they invest in one or two more class acts.

End the Barkley and Sigurdsson dramas, and put a bit more investment into these areas, and I reckon we will surprise a few with our league position after our horrendous opening 6 fixtures! But do it soon, so we are a bit more gelled and fit and ready for it come the start, in 15 days!!!!

Giroud in the middle, with Sandro, Rooney, and/or Sigurdsson moving around him could be a deadly combination.

I prefer the idea of Klaassen playing behind him.
Which then begs the question "where/how does Rooney fit into this team'?

Rooney moving around and finding space = good.

Rooney being force fed like a "target man" (i.e., before Sandro came on) = bad.

Think he'll generally have a free role, nominally either side of the traditional striker.

We've missed the players who can link midfield to attack. Even when we had Lukaku as a focal point sometimes we just couldn't get it to him and played some great football over the first 2 thirds of the pitch - only to run out of ideas and lose the ball at the edge of the box.

Now we have Rooney, Klaasen, Sandro and possibly Sigurdsson who can provide those clever, defence-unlocking passes in the final third but we still do need a focal point.

It's the one missing piece of the jigsaw now. I know we have other areas we'd like to see strengthened (like CB and out wide), but a Giroud type player would really focus the attack and allow those link up players to support and be involved in the attack themselves.

This is where I expect Sandro to flourish. When he's not necessarily the focal point, but pulling strings and popping up where he's not wanted.

This lad has grade A movement. He's a professional Pest of the highest order.

Love him.

Agree with that more in regards to Sandro.  Thought he actually started reasonably well then got injured and hasn't had a look in since.

Klaassen struggled more with each game though and you could see why he wouldn't be risked in the middle of the park in such a bad run.

Agreed that he hasn't had enough chances to prove himself but...

...Lyon at Goodison. Every ball passed his way bounced off of him. Even as a sub lacking match sharpness, it was brutal.

His crossing/passing ability is interesting but early performances have me a little worried that he can't control the ball.

It can only be lack of match minutes though.

The lad is clearly talented. A goal in every 2 starts in la liga, a few assists along with a handful of MOTM performances doesn't happen if you've not got something about you.

I can see how Sandro can possibly turn it around, as he's a busy player, he gets involved in play.

Klaassen is the exact opposite, unless something radically changes in his game (which is unlikely), it's probably best for all parties to cut their losses and move him on.

I think Sandro will come good. He's still very young, which is easy to forget looking at him. Bring him into a team in for, with less pressure to perform and we'll see the player he was showing to be in Spain.

Klaassen though, I don't see what he offers. Looks like a lost little lamb.

Just think weve been so bad as a team tactically and individually.

Sandro and Klaassen have been let downs, but I would like to see them both in a semi functioning team.

Sandro surely has the potential to do something individually good which is what were looking at say lookman for at the moment.

Klaassens whole game is finishing chances tho or working hard for someone else to get a chance rather than picking someone out with a bit of skill or something individually brilliant. Hes a pure team player and has good finishing...well the teams a mess and weve not made any chances for him.

Tim Cahill similarities from Klaassen, stylistically, while Sandro hopefully has a few more levels he can hit.

Don't think my head was falling off exactly but I was keen on Sandro and I did also really want Lemos - but as a goalscoring, free-kick-taking left-sided CB.

With Fumo out, Keane yet to find his stride and Williams being Williams - I don't think the shouts for Lemos were unreasonable.

That's because MOTD is trying to squeeze 90 minutes into about 5 minutes, and Sandro was only on the pitch for 14 minutes.

He looked quite sharp, his passing range looked quite decent, sharp precise long range passes, he also made a nuisance of himself up front. Considering he hasn't played in ages, I thought he played well.

The only issue for me so far with him is that he looked a little bit weak physically earlier in the season but it was absurd to come to any judgements about him then when he had just arrived. We have to stand by our players and support them, let them flourish. It's too easy to criticise everyone.
